BP Solar is one of the world's leading solar companies with manufacturing plants in China, India, and Frederick, Maryland. BP Solar is a part of BP Alternative Energy, which was launched in 2005 to combine all of BPís interests in zero- and low-carbon power generation including wind, solar, hydrogen power projects and gas-fired power generation. BP actually stands for British Petroleum.

BP Solar came to the solar scene as the Solarex Corporation in 1973 when solar technology was first used in outer space to power satellites. BP Solar was the first to commercialize solar power for use on land.

Today, their mission is to bring photovoltaic (PV) solar systems into the mainstream of everyday living. In 2002, BP Solar exited the thin film technology choosing instead to focus on their core markets- monocrystalline and multicrystalline cells. In the past 5 years, they have doubled their silicon wafer production, supplying customers throughout North America and around the world.

BP Solarís monocrystalline and multicrystalline panels are for residential, commercial and industrial use. Their panels come with a cell coating to improve efficiency, polarized weatherproofing and a 25-year limited warranty. The frame strength of their panels exceeds requirements of certifying agencies.

BP Solar invests more than $10M annually in photovoltaic research and development.
